Well, first off: Congratulations!
Second: breathe – it is the first step of calming down.
It is unexpected, but have you two talked about having children before? Did you have any sort of plan?
You’ll have time to figure everything out, don’t worry!

I got the same news last week. I feel the exact same way. I went to the doctor by myself and couldn’t stop crying. I am still freaking out. I wish you all the joy in the world. What a special time. Congrats!

Oh my. Don’t think about it, let it have time to process for you. Hopefully you had talked about kids, and wanted them at some point. ONce you process it, talk about it seriously and see what the next step is.

And congrats! Although not expected, I hope its not unwanted, just a little early Embarassed

Let it sink in, you don’t have to tell anyone if you don’t want to right away.  Give you and your husband time to adjust and get used to the idea before announcing to the world.

Oh my.  I’m not sure about those at home tests but you should probably go to a doctor to confirm it.  Congrats, you will be okay!

That must be so overwhelming!!  I know people who have had this come unexpected and it takes time to emotionally deal with it….but every single person I know has later said it was the best thing that has happened to them.  So congrats and best of luck!

Relax, breathe, and don’t tell ANYONE until you get it confirmed by a doc. 🙂

Both of my (now grown) children were surprises!  They are the lights of my life and I wouldn’t trade them for anything!!!  You will adjust and EVERYTHING will be fine!!!!!!  I don’t care how much or how little money or how much or how little you are prepared-REALLY EVERYTHING will be fine!!  I just wish I had been less freaked out then, and  enjoyed my “surprises” a little more at the time-regardless!  So just breathe, calm down and let yourselves enjoy what will be!!!!  (I wish somebody had told me that-my experience would have been more positive to look back upon!)  I personally don’t think that anyone really feels that they have everything ready/set for a baby in their lives.  LOL

I dont have any words of wisdom, but congratulations!  Everything will be ok, and you guys will find a way to make it work.

Congratulations and just breathe. Things will work out for you two. It’s just so soon since you have seen the home pt tests so you are in shock. I think that happens to everyone whether it was planned or not.

Kudos to you for checking with a doctor to confim. When I called in telling them I thought I was pregnant, all they asked was whether I took the test. 3 tests came out positive… their response, “Oh, you’re pregnant”. It was later confirmed by an US.

If the blood test confirms the pt tests, sit down with your hubby and start planning things. The good part about pregnancy is that you have ~9 months to get things in order.

Good luck to you and your hubby!

Congratulations!  Our response to finding out that we were pregnant 3 weeks after the wedding was, “Oh Sh*t”.  It definitely took me about 10 weeks to get adjusted to the idea, and there were definitely moments that I was less than thrilled with the rapidity of the changes in our happy life.  It’s ok to be depressed and it’s ok to cry too… In fact, I think most people go through some sort of freak out.  It means you recognize the gravity of what’s happening.

I told Mr. DG that I needed him to be unconditionally supportive and he totally was.  We also decided not to tell anyone for a while.  That ended up being well into the second trimester.

The good thing about pregnancy is that it is 9, well technically 10, months long.  There is plenty of time for adjustment.  And now, we are SO excited to be meeting Lemon in the next week or so.

As I type this, she is kicking so furiously that my whole abdomen is distorting.  It is such a happy feeling!

Don’t feel like you have to do anything right now.  Just feel what you are feeling and let it go as it ebbs.  You have a wonderful partner and together you’ll make this work.  Best of luck and feel free to contact me more if you need more of a pep talk!
